Thanks for pointing that out - it is indeed broken on arm64. This was
moved from x86 where CONFIG_DEBUG_VIRTUAL doesn't seem to pick this up.
There is actually a problem here that 'pt' might not be in the linear
map (so __pa(pt) barfs on arm64 as well as kasan_early_shadow_p?d).

It looks like having the comparisons of the form "pt ==
lm_alias(kasan_early_shadow_p?d)" is probably best.

Good point - removing the test_p?d callbacks when !CONFIG_KASAN
simplifies the code.

Thanks,

Steve
